Excerpt translated from Wikipedia: 

Auguste Roure was born in Avignon into a modest family. The death of his father forced him to enter as an apprentice engraver in a printing press where he revealed his artistic talents. His older brother had him admitted to the School of Fine Arts in Avignon. There he became a pupil of the director Pierre Grivolas who quickly appointed him professor. This promotion allows the young man to be able to marry and leave the printing press.

Now able to live from his painting, he traveled the Vaucluse by bicycle during his leisure time, easel on his back. It was during these excursions that he painted his canvas Le Ventoux seen from the heights of Malaucène , which is kept in the Palais du Roure in Avignon. When he leaves the scrubland, he joins the Var coast and the seaside, which thus become his two other favorite pictorial themes. He exhibited at the Roche gallery in Marseille and in the Parisian Salons.
